Russian shelling of Kharkiv and Kharkiv Oblast

Russia has stepped up its attacks on Kharkiv and its Oblast.

Russian forces launched missile strikes on the Saltivsky district on the night of April 27, targeting a regional psychiatric hospital and a medical complex in the city.

Families with children are being evacuated from 47 frontline settlements in the Kharkiv Oblast, Synehubov has said.

Russians changed tactics and are now conducting double strikes on the same location, hoping to maim Ukraine's emergency workers, Synehubov has said.

After the most massive Russian attack on the power grid on March 22, Kharkiv was left almost entirely without electricity. Scheduled power outages remain in effect in the Oblast.

Russia has intensified its strikes on Kharkiv because the Kremlin aims to make this city uninhabitable, turning it into a "gray zone," American media reports indicate.
